The concert is put together by music education students of the Sibelius Academy and lecturer Soili Perkiö. Soili Perkiö has been a pioneer in children’s music over many years.

Musical jourveys are intended for children, families as well as for adults with childlike attitude.

There are two concerts: one at 10:00 and the other at 11:00.

Admission to the children’s concerts is free. The number of participants in the concerts is limited, which is why attendance is guaranteed only with a ticket.

Those who have picked up a free ticket must arrive to the concert hall 10 minutes prior to the start of the concert, after which the rest of the possible remaining seats will be filled on a first come, first served basis.


Feel Helsinki is a new urban festival for the whole family, taking place at the Helsinki Music Centre on 8 June.
